Two applications are available for competition organizers to retrieve data from the SpeedskatingResults.com database.
The Vitesse Competition Manager allows race start lists to be drawn automatically using seed times retrieved from the SpeedskatingResults.com database. It includes all of the functionality of the original Participants List
The original Participants List remains available. It allows seed times to be retrieved from SpeedskatingResults.com and saved as an Excel spreadsheet
Vitesse - Competition Manager
The Vitesse Competition Manager is the successor the the Participants List app. Like the Participants List, it allows for the seed times for skaters in a competition to be retrieved from the SpeedskatingResults.com. The start lists for the competition's races can then be automatically drawn using the skater's seed times.
To install Vitesse, download the application then extract and open the zip file. Click on the Vitesse_Setup icon, then follow the instructions on the screen. The zip file includes the Vitesse Users Guide and JSON Export Reference. Both guides can also be dowloaded separately.

With the 1.20.0702 release in July 2020, Vitesse added new features to ease integration with other applications (timing systems, for example).

The JSON Export Reference documents both the JSON file export and the competition server API. An example client (written in C#) for the competition server is also available
